    We did  Preventive Maintenance service on the cars every 4000 miles. Usually put on a set of pads because it would not make it to the next one without being metal to metal.

    You are probably over thinking this. Unless you are going to track your car the Bendix or Raybestos rotors will be fine. Everything is made in China. I was a mechanic for the NYPD for 32 years. That's all we used. And believe me no one is harder on a car than a cop, especially when it is not their personnel car.

    Bendix and Raybestos still make the oem rotors. Rock Auto or Summit for best price. Couple that with a set of Porterfield pads and shoes for an excellent brake setup.

    I try to use the least aggressive method first. I would try a clay bar. Amazing how it can take trash out of paint.

    nymustang1969 got a reaction from RPM in Adding a Horn relay   
    I put a Bosch style relay under the dash in my 69' for the horn. Midlife is correct on the color codes for the wiring. I tapped into the yellow wire for the input power to the relay. I then cut the blue/yellow wire under the dash after it comes down from the turn signal switch. The blue/yellow wire on the switch end is used to trigger the relay, the other end is to the output of the relay to feed the horns. I have a rimblow switch, and this works very well because it takes the load of the horns off the switch. The relay now handles the heavy current.

    You can lose weight...
    You can also slide the seat all the way back before exiting (if not already) and it will be there when you enter the car.  You can also extend the rails for further movement backwards.

    nymustang1969 got a reaction from GypsyR in Distributor Cap for stock Motorcraft distributor   
    If you are looking for a male cap that fits our Motorcraft distributors Standard Motor Products AL482 will work. It was ment for a Prestolite distributor but fits ours also if you file a small slot that fits the index tab on the distributor. It is marked on the cap. Have been using this for years with the Ford Racing spark plug wires.

    302 2V w/ PS and Dealer installed AC under dash unit.
     

     
    I think the pulley mounts to the large bracket where the bolt is.  Best pictures I can find on other cars have a different bracket and I think it's because my car was an aftermarket dealer installed AC systemy.
     
    My older photo bucket pics are corrupted so I can't access them to see how this was before I pulled them off.
